Tackle it Tuesday!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

This Tackle It Tuesday is good for the soul! Healing I tell you! I'm on a mission to get my house in order...one Tuesday at a time! Here's today's mission - my 2 bathroom junk drawers full of nastiness!

Please turn your attention to the bottom photo....notice we keep Power Bars in our
bathroom junk drawers!
You never know when you might be sitting on the pot and have an overwhelming desire for a snack. Then look at that head band resting ever so comfortably on my.........FOOT FILE!!!!
Now take a peak at this ancient find below. That, my friends, is a 20 year old jar of lip goop...YES....20 years old! I bought that goop when I was in HIGH SCHOOL! And I've kept it around all these years for reasons unknown! I have no idea. I don't wear it. I don't like it. I can't imagine that there will ever come a time that I'll find this particular shade of neon, glow-in-the dark, glimmering peach attractive. Not only is it 20 years old...but it has been moved to FIVE different places of residence! College dorm room, apartment #1, apartment #2, home #1, and here...our current home. It's been packed and unpacked FIVE different times. And I HAVE NOT USED IT SINCE I WAS SIXTEEN YEARS OLD!!!! What is wrong with me...what particular kind of sickness is this? Well. No more. I have officially laid that goop to rest. It's in the garbage. Where it belongs. And I'm feeling a little sad.....LMAO! And I repeat....what is WRONG with me.
So, anyway, I'm done and it only took me 15 minutes....
ahhhhhhhhhh.....that wasn't so bad.....I feel so much better!

Hello fellow gymnastics mom! That really was a great tackle. I FEEL better when I get a drawer or two cleaned out and organized. Even though you can't see inside the drawer unless it is open I still know it is a mess. LOL

Have a blessed week!

The powerbar thing is too funny...
Your drawers look awesome now.

Love it,
Good Job Mom!

We are a military family. Ten moves in 15 years. And every time we move I still find strange stuff that I wonder how it did not find its way to the garbage pile during the last move! Too funny!

Stop by for a visit!

Your lip gloss story made me laugh! When we moved to this huse we had two rules - if you haven't used it, worn it, seen it in a year - it was chucked. If you can't find a home for it first time out of the box (no putting it somewhere for later) - it was chucked. It worked!

BTW - I scoffed at the Aerogarden... does it really work?

Ha ha... I know how you feel! I have clothes from when I was in high school. That was almost 20 years ago and a child ago! There is no way they will ever fit again. Or be in style again. This is my "use it or lose it" year, so I'll be tossing them in December when I admit I haven't worn them (no need to rush into this "cleaning out" project!).
